These builds any good ????

post #1 of 33
Thread Starter 
Hi all wanting to build a new computer just want some people's opinions on the parts im going to save up for

Im thinking of a budget of £550 - £600 (dont mind going a tiny bit over long as its not like crazy ie £100 over )

i will be useing it for playing any games old and new so games like witcher 3 and gta 5 and any game that is coming out also old games like abe's oddysee ect.

im not planning on running 4k or anything just at most probably 1080p and default game settings so high or very high (depends on what game recommends ofc) not overly fussed about ultra but if it can run it its more of a bonus then wanting it.

I will also be using the same computer for obs to stream to twitch at 720p @ 30fps most likey

here are the parts i have chosen what do you ppl think will it be good also anything that can be changed is fine just dont change it to a duel core coz thats crap ik i3 is 4 hyper Threds but its still a duel core so no quad core only plz smile.gif


NOTE 1 : I would like it everything worked outta the box I really dont want to have to flash the bios or update bios on the mb just to install the cpu as im not to comfy doing it my self and I dont know anyone who could either


NOTE 2 : i have not added storage as i dont need it as i have enough to get the system going and use until i buy something bigger later on

I wouldn't think so; the motherboard has been in this revision for a long time and the last BIOS was released in June.

BIOS updates isn't the problem. BIOS programming might be. The UD3P rev1, has been the most reccommended budget overclocking motherboard in the forum. And structurally, there is nothing wrong with rev2 either. But there seems to be a problem with rev2 and overclocking past turbo values. See here:

http://www.overclock.net/t/1577652/970a-ud3p-fail-with-22-multi-but-never-with-21-at-any-voltage

So you have iRUSH (who first reported the problem on 2 UD3P rev2), Superstition and Bonami, that all got rev2 and all have troubles with the multiplier beyond turbo values. I don't know, i personally grew weary of the situation.

A cheap alternative would be ASUS M5A7 EVO R2.0, which according to the Stilt, if cooled properly, could go to 4.7.

But i can't guarantee about anything here. However, personally, i have stopped proposing the UD3P rev2, for anyone intending to overclock past turbo values. At least until someone comes back to the forum to say "i overclocked with rev2 past 4.2 with no problems, using multi".

Stock and up to 4Ghz (which you should overclock to anyway, trust me), you won't have problem with UD3P, because they all said that the troubles start beyond that. Take the UD3P then.

Overclocking these CPUs to 4Ghz is very easy and you 're not putting too much stress on the motherboard. The UD3P can take the stress anyway. Don't stay at 3.2Ghz. At 4Ghz you are simply running like 8350 at stock. So nothing too exagerated. It's what i do too.
